The flyers, distributed at the University of California, Davis, blame Jewish people for all “anti-white, anti-American, anti-freedom” incidents. They display several figures, including Sen. Dianne Feinstein, California professor Christine Blasey Ford, attorney Michael Avenatti and billionaire George Soros with Stars of David on their foreheads, the Jewish Journal reported. The bottom of the flyers show newly confirmed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, depicted normally, the Bee reported. 

In a Facebook post, Associated Students UC Davis President Michael Gofman condemned the flyers as “a disgusting anti-Semitic attack.”

“If any Jewish students are feeling unsafe or uncomfortable on campus today, please reach out and I will connect you with the proper resources,” Gofman wrote.

The bottom of the flyer attributes it to the local Stormer Book Club, small organizations that support The Daily Stormer, which is a neo-Nazi website, the Jewish Journal reported.

University Chancellor Gary S. May said in a statement that the flyers’ message was “reprehensible” and against the school’s posting policies.

“To all of our students, faculty and staff, please know I won’t stand for intolerance of any kind,” May wrote.
